Believe in power of prayer. Will it work for overactive bladder?

In brief: It Depends

If you are speaking of faith healing in general, as a physician and scientist, i cannot vouch for that as a viable medical intervention.
However, since overactive bladder is a condition highly affected by stress and other goings-on in your brain, i would not dispute that stress-reduction by any means or any activities that contribute to positive thinking and overall feeling of well-being can help.
